    Now this is my best achievement so far. Our garden in Auckland, grown outside proves rather difficult. but did she perform or what?

    I think this one might be related to that one. I took it (along with the one above) at my parents' place in Helensville.

    Can't resist adding one of my fave scenes (no chillis involved but may bring tears).

    Oh, snap, was about to post this! Made me bawl when I saw it. :-)

    If it is of Heliconia Genus then yes, you would be correct. There is up to 200 species.

    Love venus flytraps!
    I used to have a red population thereof - that, sadly, died during one long egress from here...

    Ow! ow! :-)

    I used to have a family of very tall pitcher plants, which were so elegant it was easy to forget what went on inside! This is the stem of one of them. They were given to me by someone who bought them for their looks and then found them too creepy. :-)

    ETA: carnivorous plants get way creepier, though: there’s one that lives underwater that captures its prey by emptying a water-filled reservoir inside its body which causes the prey to be sucked in. Slurp!!

    Don't flowers suggest spring has sprung and a long hot summer is just around the corner. This plant has flowered on the deck in the last few days.
    The carnivores look fantastic.

    I think I must have carnivorous pants...
    but oddly, the fly is undone before the water bladder is emptied!
    (especially after ingesting sweet infusions of malt and grain)
    ok, that is creepy...

    Once more unto the breeches, dear frond.

    Just to be clear, I was calling you a knitted aquatic diver.

    I've been called worse. And no, I still have no idea what I meant. ;-)

    Time to flea from this thread, before there are any more evacuations! Or Jackson starts talking about boobies.
